Overview

About the property

Ready to Relax in 1296 Square Feet of Island Life?

Life is Good at the Beach, located on the north end of Anna Maria Island, is a fantastic place to start your vacation.

This three-bedroom, two-bath, vacation rental is just a five minute walk to the beautiful north end beaches near Bean Point and two blocks to the Rod & Reel Pier. The extra-large screened porch greets you when you walk in the door. The spacious floor plan can be combined with the porch for an even larger living area when the slider doors are opened. Dine in or out on the lanai or near the tropically landscaped heated pool!

The king master, queen second bedroom and twin third bedroom offer plenty of sleeping options. Three televisions, including a 55-inch HD flat screen in the living room, wireless internet access, and the main floor washer and dryer, help to make this a perfect home away from home.

When you are ready to explore the island, remember to hop on board the free AMI trolley that runs daily along the island and has a stop a brief walk from your door.

Contact Coastal Cottages AMI to reserve today and remember to ask us about our monthly discounted rates!

Life IS GREAT at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this house. This was our third vacation to Anna Maria and this house was our favorite. The size and layout was perfect for our family of four, my kids loved that they got their own rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to accommodate our plans to eat in for the majority of our stay, and we enjoyed the view from the screened in patio where we ate most of our meals. The location was perfect for us, just a short walk to our favorite beach area on the island and we appreciated the beach gear the house included and the outdoor shower for washing off the sand. And the house had plenty of towels which was super handy since we swam a lot at the beach and the pool. I could go on and on, thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Beach, fun and sun are waiting for you!

This family and pet friendly vacation rental is located on Florida's Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
